Principal, Jon Torrens

Jon’s worked as a designer (and experienced the joy of deadlines) at games companies including Sony and Criterion, and as a professional stand-up comic for a few years, so he knows how to engage and motivate. Occasionally he can be funny too.

Now, as a coach and speaker, Jon teaches effective communication, using his personal skills to both show and tell. He has delivered training for Foster + Partners and Cambridge University. Unique insights from the worlds of computer game design and stand-up comedy enable even the most introverted of his clients to deliver presentations delight and motivate their audiences.
